International Day of Friendship

Being part of the extended Rockley family has given us all an opportunity to make some lifelong friends and today we look at just a few that have been forged over the years. 

This international friendship day we celebrate all of our friends and family at Rockley and look back on over 40 years of friendships and bonds built working together. 

There have been many relationships started at Rockley several which have had a very happy chapter in marriage and children. Some of the team have shared their stories with us. 

My best friend, Sarah Robinson and I met when I was working for Eurocamp at La Reserve about 20 years ago as part of a University placement. Sarah was working for Rockley as an instructor after completing her ITC course at Rockley Point - she was part of the first ever Rockley ITC course. I ended up going out with Tom who was the Manager of La Rive and she was going out with Ali who was also working for Rockley, and was Tom’s best friends. Long story short, we split up from our boyfriends and have remained friends ever since. We have been a bridesmaid for each other and we have children of  similar ages who get on brilliantly! When we catch up we spend a lot of time eating cake and drinking prosecco and G&T! 100% we’ll be best friends forever thanks to Rockley. Cassy Preston

Aaron and I met in La Reserve in 2011 and don't think we have stopped laughing since! While working in Italy Aaron would come to visit and I would always came and see him on my return from travels. Aaron and his fiancee became my landlords when I came back to Rockley, at the beginning of 2016 and then he  joined me at Poole Park where we run the centre together. There have been a few disagreements along the way but nothing a few cold ones can't fix. In July last year we had the party of all parties; Aaron and Sarah's wedding happened and I was privileged enough to be one of his (or Sarah's) Bridesmaids. AJ Windsor


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The United Nations International Day of Friendship highlights that our world face many challenges, crises and forces of division — such as poverty, violence, and human rights abuses — among many others — that undermine peace, security, development and social harmony among the world's peoples.

To confront those crises and challenges, their root causes must be addressed by promoting and defending a shared spirit of human solidarity that takes many forms — the simplest of which is friendship.

Through friendship — by accumulating bonds of camaraderie and developing strong ties of trust — we can contribute to the fundamental shifts that are urgently needed to achieve lasting stability, weave a safety net that will protect us all, and generate passion for a better world where all are united for the greater good.

Rob’s blog - Moving from a small pond to a big sea: Expanding your competitive horizons >

Like most sports, in sailing there always feels like there is a home field advantage. We may not have the crowd cheering us on – certainly not in my case – but familiarity with a venue or set of competitors helps create a confidence that you have a sense of what will happen, where the wind will shift or tide will flow, and the moves and counter moves of your competition. In fact knowing where you stand in the local pecking order can give a timely nudge to push forwards and establish the natural order or be comfortable that you have done well in your relative result.
